This class will qualify you for the Florida concealed carry permit (application packets will be provided) and also is designed to comply with all the regulations set forth in pending legislation in Springfield for an Illinois concealed carry permit. It is NOT a boring class taught by an instructor who just lectures with a powerpoint presentation.  Rather, this is an interactive class with very interesting video clips and training aids such as a laser sight and inert training pistols so the day will move by very quickly.
Joy improved tremendously
after the 8 hour class!

The class is the NRA Basic Pistol Shooting course, and will have the additional shooting qualification at the end of the day of shooting, with a score of 70% being a passing grade:

  • 10 rounds at 5 yards
  • 10 rounds at 7 yards
  • 10 rounds at 10 yards

The target used is a B27 silhouette, which is man-sized.  This is the target and distances spelled out in House Bill 997, and the same as House Bill 1155. No other training / shooting requirements have passed, and we are confident that this will be what is required when the final bill passes.

Florida concealed carry permits will be recognized in Illinois, according to both of these bills, so the class will be the best way to be able to carry concealed in Illinois as soon as possible.

For the seasoned shooter who wants to hone his (or her) skills or the total beginner, this class will help you shoot accurately and safely.
